I felt like I had been punched in the stomach and then kicked in the dandy doodles and then punched again. This is one of the worst experiences I have ever had on any medication. This is the worst medication I have ever taken in my entire life. I struggle daily from chronic diarrhea. Going 5-6 times a day, crying in a bathroom stall at work type of deal. Well I recently had abdominal surgery, which was also very painful. The narcotics I took for the pain made me extremely backed up to the point of no return. I took x lax the first go around and finally had a bowel movement. Still backed up, wanted something light to help, I chose this product given the description "gentle and predictable"... As I am typing this, I'm huddled over the toilet not sure if I'm going to puke, or evacuate my entire colon EXCEPT for the backed up poo. This is the worst pain I've ever felt in my life. I would rather dig my eyes out with a potato peeler. I'm pretty sure I might die in my bathroom right now and found in a big pile of my own poo. Had this product been labeled "veitnam for your colon" I would have expected this.
